We were at the Riu from Feb4th to the 11th with a group of 8. Everything was wonderful! The rooms are very posh and kept very clean. True the lobby is a little garish but I am sure they will redecorate soon enough. The staff are friendly and helpful, the check in real fast and easy(mind you if it is your first trip to an all inclusive you may be a little dazed). We read enough reviews to not bother with the ala cartes and were never disapointed with the buffet. The food was great!!! We have been to the DR 4 times Jamaica,Cuba and Mexico and Punta Cana wins in the beach catagory. I have nothing negative to say except 10 days would be better!!!
